As in the real world, a politician is a person at the highest levels of active government decision making (e.g., president, sovereign in an absolute monarchy, prime minister, member of a legislature), or active in electoral or partisan politics (e.g., party official, failed candidate for public office, party nominee, aspiring candidate for public office). A majority of characters in the NSwiki are politicians.
